In March 1991 an amateur gay footballer living in London put an advert in a gay publication asking for like-minded people to contact him. He wanted to encourage gay men to play competitive football and he was amazed by the number of replies he received.
Stonewall Football Club was born, and it was the first gay mens football club in the UK.
The club joined the Sportsmans Senior Sunday Football League that same year and have grown to the extent that we have run up to four teams in a season.
Currently we play against straight oppositions in the Middlesex County Football League - Premier Division (step 7 of the non-league pyramid table), the AFA West End Sunday League, and the friendly London Unity League, with extra fixtures in the GFSN League cup rounds. We also have regular 5-a-side training, yearly football tours, and social events.
We have a fully dedicated, and determined committee to drive the success of the club; on and off the pitch. Our dedicated committee has allowed the club to obtain the FA Charter Standard, which recognises and rewards clubs and leagues that are well run, sustainable, which place child protection, quality, coaching and safety paramount.
We are the current European and Gay Games Champions.
